History, projects and research
Planorte Farm began its activities in the 1993/94 harvest. At this time, it only planted soy. Today it plants soy, cotton, corn and crop livestock integration. In the initial structure, there was only the headquarters where the collaborators were. Today, the Farm has 170 fixed collaborators and up to 320 with harvesters at certain times of the year, has 60 ha at headquarters I and 33 ha at headquarters II, with an office, sheds, cotton, warehouse etc.
Every year during the week of SIPATR, the collaborators of the Farm collect non-perishable food, assemble basic food baskets and distribute these baskets to the Pastoral da Criança de Sapezal and to the needy families of the same city. In 2017, the Treasury implemented the Digital Inclusion Space, democratizing access to technology and distance education, taking collaborators into the digital and knowledge era.
The research area of Planorte Farm occupies more than 160 ha destined to studies applied to cotton, soy and corn crops. Currently, there are tests that assess the response of crops to the management of potassium fertilizers, soil management and coverings, as well as the use of foliar fertilizers in some crops. The studies carried out to define seeding times and adaptability/stability of genotypes in crops of commercial interest are also of paramount importance.
